Roquan Smith trade gives Ravens two of the best

  • Tackling score: 94
  • Coverage score: 62
  • Pass rush score: 75
  • OVERALL SCORE: 84

The reigning NFL tackles leader was one of several players to cash in with the Jaguars this offseason, signing a three-year, $45 million contract after a breakout year for the Falcons. Oluokun has kept up his production 2022, but his tackles have been even more impactful, with the 27-year-old recording a league-high 45 defensive stops (tackles resulting in a successful play for the defense). The Yale product has shown off improved range this season, generating 10 hustle stops through eight games (tied for third in the NFL), nearly matching last season’s total (11). If the best ability is availability, Oluokun has that in spades. He hasn’t missed a defensive snap since Week 12 of last season, playing 921 consecutive snaps. That active defensive ironman streak trails only Xavier McKinney (1,424) and C.J. Mosley (1,006). While his coverage abilities still have a lot of room for improvement, the fifth-year linebacker has brought some much-needed stability to the second level of Jacksonville’s defense.
